Nutag-Homeland

A visual poem and surrealist requiem for the Kalmyk people that were mass-deported by USSR from 1943-1957. Half of them died before they were allowed to return home. The film manifests itself as an archetype with frame-by-frame hand painted imagery, bringing back an example of human history on the eternal theme of diaspora and the loss of homeland.
